I went to the Oktoberfest in Mt. Angel, Oregon and recorded the glockenspiel in this clock tower. I used my Sony point and shoot camera to take a movie. Later I used QuickTime 7 on my iMac to export the audio as an AIFF file. I then used iTunes to convert the file to a mp3.
The cool thing about this is that the figures are carved by local volunteers and everything is performed by people who have a connection with the scene. Braves of the Grand Ronde native tribes sing a song to the Great Spirit. The youngest daughter of Mount Angel’s Zollner Family of the Z Musikmakers plays the violin as her direct ancestors Robert and Katrina Zollner are presented. The Benedictine Monks chant an ancient hymn in Latin and the Benedictine Sisters sing “Regina Coeli Latare”. The village band plays a polka and Mount Angel’s school children sing “Edelweiss” at the end.
